The Polish Martyrs

We interviewed a Polish man; he said, "I had a home. The Nazis came and burned down my home.
I built another home. The Soviets came and burned down my home. I built another home."

This is an example of the Poles we met on our trip to Poland, in search of heroes past and present.
We knew we would get to better know our Pope visiting the people he loved and the Shrines he most cherished,
but we never expected to fall so in love with a people. They say that we get the priest we deserve.
Well, we can see why the Lord sent this Pope to serve among these brave and holy stubborn people.
This is the land of Martyrs. No wonder the Pope loves the people of Mexico; they could be cousins of his
native brothers and sisters of Poland - lands of Martyrs - land of Mary, with two sister images of Mary
 Czestochowa and Loreto. Discover the treasury of faithfulness we found among the martyrs of Poland and Lithuania.

Viewers Comments: Dear Bob and Penny:
I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated your recent video which I saw today about the life of St. Maximilian Kolbe. I was so touched and saddened by his great act of faith and love for others in the concentration camp at Auschwitz, not to mention his life in general.
Your presentation of his life was very beautiful and gave honor to God and the Blessed Mother. I just wanted you to know that it deepens my faith and love for God and the Blessed Mother. Your work is an act of love for those who do not know the stories of these Martyrs. His life will always be an inspiration for me and my walk as a Catholic.
Thanks again,  D. M. e-mail
